These two apartments are best rented together; they’re perfect for a group of friends who want an easy walk home from the bars at night and a short jaunt to campus in the morning. Apt 2 has 4 bedrooms and 1 bath, and Apt 3 has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths for a total of 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Together, these rental units can house up to 9 people.
These spacious apartments feature huge windows, updated kitchens and a shared front porch. The century-old brick home is tucked just off High Street in a convenient, central neighborhood that melds residential with student rentals. You’re close to uptown as well as Union Street, which means short, safe walks to and from, well, anywhere in central Athens and the west side of campus, really.
Both units need to be available to be able to combine the spaces. But each of these rental apartments are great on their own: close to OU, close to uptown, AC, city utilities included in the rent, and even parking rentals available nearby.

What’s the neighborhood like?
Washington Street is an interesting place. Winding, partially one-way, filled with student rentals in historic homes surrounded by trees. This centrally-located apartment sits just behind Athens Middle School, so you’ve got a good bit of peace and quiet but still close access to the bars and campus.
